5 Ways to Stay Energy Efficient While Returning...

Battery Storage for a holiday house.
Anthony already knows benefits of Solar Panels as already own a property with solar system in place.
In fact, Anthony is so pleased with his existing Solar Panels, he asked us to design a system that will work for his holiday house.
We were challenged to design a solar system and find the way of using free energy while Anthony was not there.
Because Anthony knew so much about solar panels, we needed to sharpen our pencils to impress our client and a bluer idea of a battery storage was staring to come alive.
Large battery storage and smaller solar panels system.
We have focused on best system efficiency. First of all, we needed to understand how energy is being used. To do this, we broke down entire year to months and weeks.
We founded that Anthony was away for most of weekdays and mainly was using house for weekends. This lead us to a fundamental design decision.
We needed a large battery storage system that will provide enough free energy over weekend so there is no need to purchase any more from grid.
And to keep everything charged properly, 4 kWp Solar system was installed that has enough capacity to charge battery storage as well as to provide power for any household appliances that could be used at the same time.
After some setup issues, two battery storage packs were synchronised together.
Two LG batteries were set up in two charging modes. One 10 kWh kit was coupled through DC where second 10 kWh battery unit was engaged through AC connection.
Two SolarEdge new HD inverters are communicating between them and distributing generated free solar energy to either house or battery packs.
Worth mentioning is that one battery storage kit doesn’t actually need solar panels to operate.
Simply, we can charge one battery from grid at night. This could be done in conjunction with switching to Economy Tariff. So, you can charge battery storage at night when energy is cheap and use stored energy during day when is more expensive to buy.
We were really impressed by the professionalism of Griff Services and would recommend them in the future. The work was undertaken well and we had positive comments regarding the corporate identity of Michael and his co-worker and the company vehicle.
Along with the big contracts I know you usually work on the professionalism and quality of work you provided for me on a one off job was truly outstanding. I have had many previous encounters with tradespeople who are late (or never show up) and only do half a job, and ask for more money than originally quoted. To my relief Griff Services have been an absolute pleasure to do business with and I have recommended their services to my colleagues, family, and friends who are in the Construction trade.
We needed 6 Solar Panels to be assembled and dismantled few days later. These were for training purposes for local Fire Brigade in Manchester. Project was successful with just few minor issues that have been addressed and resolved at the time. We would definitely use Griff Services Ltd in future.
Griff Services did a great job for me. They arranged for the installation of the EV charging point at short notice and provided update and reminder text messages prior to the job. On the morning of the install they also notified me of the installer Tom's ETA. Tom did a great and tidy job and was extremely pleasant to deal with. Overall I would highly recommend them for future work. Thank you
The EV charging point install was very tidy and efficient. Happy to recommend Griff Services in future.
Meeting Michael and the GRIFF team was a breath of fresh air. Michael and his entire team were on-hand and available through the whole process to cope with the inevitable challenges of a project this size, and their ongoing quality assurance throughout the programme ensured that on move-in day, we did not even have one item which was not fully operational. I would thoroughly recommend GRIFF tor commercial projects of any scale.
We needed to replace solar panels inverter and Griff Services quoted a very sensible price. They were able to do the installation only a few days later. It was all done in a day, with no disruption and a great deal of efficiency and courtesy. We were exceedingly impressed by Michael’s conscientious approach, both to the original discussions and the planning process, and also to the execution of the job. He was a pleasure to meet and to have around the place. Thank you, Michael.
